ARKANSAS PLANTATION PIE

1 1/2 cups cooked or canned sweet potatoes, mashed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 tsp salt
3 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 9 or 10-inch unbaked pastry shell
1 tbsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a mixing bowl combine the mashed sweet potatoes, one-half cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Beat the egg yolks and add to the mixture. Add the milk, butter, and pecans; mix together well. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes.

During the last few minutes the pie is baking at 350 degrees, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Add the tablespoon of brown sugar, beating well to dissolve into the egg whites. At the end of the above baking time, remove the pie from the oven and add the egg white meringue to the top of the pie being careful to go all the way to the crust and seal edges. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake pie an additional 20 minutes.
